Transcript for Cuba's Next Generation
And finally tonight, from Cuba, they are hard to miss here. The children with their smiling faces, eager to tell us, they knew exactly why we were here. The power players are in those diplomatic meetings, but this next generation may hold the real power. Tonight, the children of Cuba. The soccer game beyond the fence. Hola! 11-year-old robin told me, it will be great when they remove the blockage. Thanks to them, we're going to have a better economic situation. And I asked them all if they believe this new effort toward diplomatic ties is a good idea. Si! Reporter: We asked about technology here. There's no rule about smartphones or the internet. But with families making $20 to $40 a month -- these children never held an iPhone. There's hope that opening trade one day could bring some of that here for the children. But it's the adults visiting Cuba with their can eye on something else. Tourists can bring back $400 in souvenirs. $100 in those cigars. And those American cars we showed you from the 1950s, it turns out back home, they're worth 20 grand. If the doors open here, one of these cars, because of the history, could fetch three times that much, $60,000. The children here, not concerned about that. They tell Mel they just want a better future. And even on a playground, they're aware of the historic talks here in Havana. The faces of the future. We loved meeting them today. And that is "World news tonight" from Havana, Cuba. Thank you for watching on this historic day. And from last night in Washington. We'll be back in New York tomorrow night. Until then, good night.
